Artists & Climate Change: Awareness (Part 2) More Info

Thursday 3rd December, 7-8pm

Art & Activism: Climate Change Awareness 

This second session with artist & activist Ellie Harrison. Harrison’s work seeks to make visible the connections between social, environmental and economic injustices in our world, and to actively address them.

In 2010, she became the first visual artist to publish an Environmental Policy. In 2016, she slashed her carbon footprint for transport to zero and made headlines with her ‘controversial’ project The Glasgow Effect. A real-life experiment in ‘thinking globally and acting locally’, for the whole calendar year she refused to leave Glasgow’s city limits, or use any vehicles except her bike. Her first book The Glasgow Effect: A Tale of Class, Capitalism & Carbon Footprint was inspired by the 2016 project and published by Luath Press in November 2019.

As a result of her 2016 project, Harrison is now involved in running several local projects and campaigns aimed at making Glasgow a more equal, sustainable and connected city, including the Get Glasgow Moving public transport campaign, Carfree Glasgow and Glasgow Community Energy.
